- Chord changes
- Open chords
The 3rd guitar lesson for beginners out of our series of 10 beginner guitar lessons concentrates on one thing: how to change chords. Every beginner guitarist struggles with this at first, even the pro guitarists you see on TV had a hard time with changing in-between chords, trust me. As with all guitar skills, this takes practice as well. With time, you will strengthen your hands and develop their muscle memory, so they'll instinctively move to the chord you want to fret. I know this may seem impossible right now, but trust me, it's not. It is an acquired skill, and anyone can learn it. This guitar lesson will cover:
- how to change chords
- developing muscle memory in your hands
- the correct way of practicing chord changes
Practice your chord changes, as it's a fundamental part of playing the guitar. This lesson will show you how, but it doesn't practice for you. That's up to you! Watch the video many times, and more importantly, develop your muscle memory. You'll see that with time, these chord changes will come naturally.
After practicing your chord changes, you could:
